Information about the setting

Honey Bears Nursery was registered in 1991 on the Early Years Register and both the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare register. It is situated in the Erdington area of Birmingham and is managed by a partnership. The nursery serves the local and surrounding areas and is accessible to all children. It operates from converted retail premises. There is no enclosed area available for outdoor play, although, regular outings for physical play are planned because the setting has an arrangement in place with the local children’s centre, which allows them to access their outdoor play facilities on a daily basis. Children from the setting walk to and from the children’s centre. The nursery employs 14 members of childcare staff. Of these, 13 hold appropriate early years qualifications at level 3, 5 and 6. The nursery opens Monday to Friday all year round except Christmas bank holiday. Sessions are from 7.30am until 6pm. Children attend for a variety of sessions. There are currently 68 children attending, who are in the early years age group. The nursery provides funded early education for two-, three- and four-year-old children. It supports a number of children who speak English as an additional language and children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. The nursery receives support from the local authority. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: enhance the use of non-verbal communication to further promote children’s learning and development, so that they continue to achieve to the highest level.
